Cush Rubber Compatability?

Does anybody know if the cush rubbers from a Daytona 600 will fit a SSSA Daytona 955i?
I am removing my rear wheel soon so I haven't actually seen mine but they sure look alike in pictures. My desire is to see if I can soften harsh shifting which may be the result of hardened rubbers. Mark.

They are completely different.

When trying to ID part compatibility use a Fiche, like World of Triumph

When you compare these for the respective models, you will see instantly they are individual pieces for the 955 and one-piece for the 600

(It IS however the same part for the DSSA 955 and the 600)

You might also look to your chain adjustment as potential source of issue

Thanks DEcosse, winter is coming fast. I will soon be taking the rear tire off to see if my cush rubbers are hardened then I'll go from there.
I'm rather excited as I just located an S3 top triple clamp and bar risers on ebay which will be delivered today. That means I'll actually be able to ride the bike next summer and enjoy it. And for the record, after all the torture- I NEVER TALKED .
I also ordered a used starter relay to get rid of my pesky starting problem.

Give us a little more detail on that one - you mean starter solenoid?
Very rare failure - more likely the clutch switch interlock or starter button itself if starter solenoid is not throwing.

Oops, I meant starter solenoid. The starter button works fine every time as does the clutch handle interlock (and kickstand). I can hear the solenoid engage but just hear a sizzling noise as if the internal heavy contacts are dirty and just sit there arcing instead of letting the starter have it's full alotment of juice. This happens intermitently and has nothing to do with the batterys' state of charge (which is always trickle charged). I plan on removing the old one and taking it apart to examine for pitted contacts. I am an electrician and have worked on many mag starters and pitted contacts.

UPDATE: The cush rubbers are fine with no play and no wear. They are in fact individual rubbers. I did notice however that my wheel nut and cush drive nut seemed to have been installed with nowhere near the 148nm called for. I easily loosened them with a regular 1/2 inch ratchet handle. I'm wondering if that is the source of my harsh shifts at high RPM.
